This Chocolate Chunk Bourbon Pecan Tart is a simple and delicious recipe that is gluten free and refined sugar free - no corn syrup!

I have been wanting to create a pecan tart recipe that didn’t have corn syrup but still had the sweetness and bite that a traditional pecan pie has since last fall and here it is!! Of course I added chocolate chunks, bourbon and sea salt to it because they make everything better.  I love a pecan pie or tart around the holidays and the best part of them is that you can make them a day or two before which is amazing for Thanksgiving!

You can also make this in the Traeger (or any smoker) if your oven is being used.  I used to not like pecan pie when I was younger (something about the texture) but they are my dads absolute favorite so I would make them for him year after year and eventually I started loving them!  Now If you have any texture issues with pecan pies, this is the tart for you! It is just a bit thinner than a pie so it has a fabulous texture and filling to crust ratio.  Important things people! Okay let’s just get to the recipe shall we?
